    High Court rejects plain packaging challenge. Not convinced.

    Will it *really* make a difference.

    High Court rejects plain packaging challenge - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    I'm sure there's a big circle jerk about it right now

    For sure! + brownie points for politicians + more money for the anti-smoking brigade and a government/pfizer who's hoping to hell not *too* many people give up the gaspers.

    I honestly don't know of a single person who started smoking because "the pack looked sexy." ..... All this is doing is opening the floodgates for black market cigarettes. All black market importers have to do now is plop them in an olive green box, stamp Peter Jackson or Winfield etc on them and who's to know any different?

    Um..it's going to be kinda off olive colour..some marketing w!nker probably did some colour psychology research.

    Comments are interesting in

    Plain packaging | tobacco | High Court

    ..just more opportunity for smoker bashing, making someone's frustrating work day just that little bit easier I'm sure.

    Yeah, and my job harder. It's hard enough remembering where all the different brands and pack sizes are, now I'll have to pull packets out and read each one until I get the right brand/size ..... Yay, like I didnt have enough to do already .... lol

    its a sad day when you feel typing 'wanker' in australia is inappropriate.
    plain packaged speech is it ? what about ΨαπΚΣΓ instead. much more decorative.

    those comments are from the same old toe the line establishment tossers every time, I feel like grabbing the public by the hair and dunking them until they get sensible and get off the high horse .. or drown. whichever comes first.

    I guess only time will tell if these laws will make any difference.

    Stoney..it's habit, some companies friends work at, they have e-mail filters that don't allow delivery of email if they pick up profanity.
